Pops Is Tops At Corona Jazz Series For Schoolchildren

Queens schoolchildren wiggled, jiggled, danced and clapped at the Louis Armstrong House Museum in Corona last week. The Ray Vega Quintet performed double sessions over three days as part of the 26th annual Pops is Tops concert series, which seeks to introduce youngsters to jazz. During the shows, Quintet members — Ray Vega on trumpet and flugelhorn, Zaccai Curtis on piano, Andy Eulau on bass, Wilson “Chembo” Corniel on congas, and Diego Lopez on drums — discussed their instruments and the music genre as they played classics by Louis Armstrong (of course) and other jazz legends.
